Summary "Urbanisation, political and economic changes, fragmented labour markets, family and state ... these key themes run throughout this rigorous comparative analysis of housing provision in the southern European countries, written by an international group of authors." "Housing and Welfare in Southern Europe fills a major gap in the literature on comparative European housing policy. It shows how the relationship between state, market and civil society in Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece is fundamentally different from northern Europe. By providing a southern view of housing provision, it throws new light on difficult social and housing policy issues throughout Europe." "This book will be of direct interest to academics, policy makers and students involved in housing."--BOOK JACKET
